42 and having a destination wedding on the beach.  I didn’t think this dress was “me” at all.  I liked the second dress at first more (I tried it on before the first picture).  I thought I loved it, but I still felt some doubt.  When I saw this one in the mirror, I said, “This is the dress!”  I went alone because I didn’t want outside influences.  Everyone around me was raving about it.  I don’t think the picture does it justice.  Have some weight to lose, and then I guess alterations to be done.  =)

  • Wedding: May 2016 - Ever After Banquet Hall

I will be a month shy of 41 at the time of our wedding. I don’t have a pic of me in the dress….my SIL took all the pictures on her phone when we were shopping for security reasons 😉 This is the dress I ordered.

The only difference is that it is pictured with a “linen” (tan) colored lining behind the “cameo” (darkish blush) tulle and ivory lace. I ordered it cameo on cameo, still with the ivory lace, so it will be slightly pinker. Depending on how I like it when it comes in, I may order a lighter pink lining to lighten it up just a bit more.

I saw the movement of this gown – and knew I have to wear it. . All other ideas or looks just vanished and I want this big flowy ballgown of fabulous organza!!! I’m 36 now and we are just now picking out engagement rings . ..  who knows how old I’ll be when weget married– but it WILL be in this dress! LOL I don’t care if it seems more for someone who is a blushing early 20’s person. . .I must float on this cloud! =D

MOB dress for this 53 year old. It looks white-ish in the photo, but it’s really more of a beige gold. Note to self: get spanx.
